    Rita~'s Note:

    This I had years ago at Woodrow's Bar and Restaraunt. I wrote for the recipe and got it!! It's fabulous!! I've also made it with grilled chicken and served it on top for a Heartier Meal!! It's refreshing in the summer with fresh basil out of the garden.

      This salad is so good, I added in a small amount of fresh garlic, salt and black pepper to the dressing, I love the taste of the pine nuts in this dressing and in the salad also, my DS who is very picky of what kind of salads he eats really enjoyed this salad, I served it with grilled steaks tonight, I will be making this again soon, great salad, thanks Rita!...Kitten

      The dressing was good...creamy and nutty. I had a difficult time translating some of the ingredients into measurable amounts. Since math is not my strong suit I figured that 1/4 of an ounce is about a tablespoon, it tasted right. I felt the dressing needed some salt and put in about 1/2 teaspoon. We loved the addition of whole basil leaves with the spinach, and I'll do that again with other salads in the future.
